Detailed plans for an 18-home estate in a Herefordshire village have been unveiled.

Evesham-based Cotswold Oak was granted outline permission to develop the Glebe Land to the east of Eardisley at appeal in late 2021, after its initial plan was refused.

It was supported at the time by the local parish council, which said the site was earmarked for development under the neighbourhood plan, and welcomed “the diversity of the proposed housing mix”.


The company is now seeking approval for the details of the scheme, including the houses’ design and layout.

This is its second such application, after an earlier attempt was withdrawn due to objections over the proposed drainage strategy – which the latest bid claims to have addressed.

It confirms that six of the 18 are to be affordable homes, while the overall mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom houses including a bungalow “has been agreed as acceptable” with the council’s housing officer.

In response to feedback on the withdrawn application, they have been reduced in height and feature “more varied” materials.

Access to the estate will be off the existing Millstream Gardens, a cul-de-sac, which it would appear as a continuation of when built.

Comments on the reserved matters planning application, numbered 233489, can be made until December 29.
